2. Keep us posted!...
Nadine, your posts from the front lines have been invaluable. In years to come you will be seen as one of the scribes of the Occupation. (that's assuming we have anything resembling free speech in years to come, but I digress)

Keep 'em coming. Be safe. Stay strong. You represent multitudes. Portland sends love and courage.

9. My view on this, well about power
she is reacting like anybody in power would. It is an exception that a person in power will not react this way to this challenge.

12. They are taking names and other identifiers
To say that my stomach is churning... this is what you do to prepare, The list is to prepare to get people out of jail. They are ready to face arrest. They are ready...

They are ready to fight for them rights. And they are getting surrounded

13. We are fired up, we are ready to go...
this from vets, they know. It is a strange thing I am watching, but I know it is familiar, the preparations are those before battle and they are psyching themselves up. Of course one of the vets that has trouble finding a job in the civilian world... well how many of you need an EOD expert? Not like C-4 will translate into the civilian world.

14. That's coming from St. Louis now.
The global revolution site keeps switching to what's hot at the moment. For awhile they were showing Oakland and St Louis on split screens, but using the audio from St. Louis. It was a little confusing to follow. Both protests are now facing imminent eviction by police.

15. LEGAL team working on getting an emergency injunction
Edited on Fri Nov-11-11 10:45 PM by nadinbrzezinski
against the eviction order. They are at Freedom Square and emergency injunction is being filed at the Federal Court House, Fifty people are outside, and people are filing up at Freedom square, and the bike cops are massing... as curfew approaches. There are 250 people currently, curfew is at ten... rumors is that the assault will happen at eleven. Curfew is at ten and they are asking people to come down now . People are going to stay no matter what. Forty three days ago they gave a lot of warnings, so they are hoping for warnings

They were issued an official eviction order, yesterday... public notice at two pm yesterday.

Media team never sleeps... (keep your coffee guys)

St Lous

20. The powers that be do not understand it
while they react in expected ways, they are the movements best PR team we could ask for. And the irony is missed by most.
